Course Content

Course Outline:
A one-day workshop to reflect and discuss the priorities of older people in health and social care.  Key priorities in research have considered loneliness and isolation, support and training for family carers, negative perceptions of older people and inequalities related to public services and healthcare.  Older people should be actively involved in all stages of their care and this workshop aims to echo this.

Those who attend are given the opportunity to share their views and opinions and to discuss priorities in care within their clinical environment.

The main aim of this workshop is to identify and focus issues that are important to older people, as well as create an environment for health professionals to share ideas related to these important issues.
